Rat monoclonal antibodies (mAb) against isolated pig Null T cells were derived using a novel two-colour cytofluorometric assay. One (MAC320) identified all blood CD2-sIg- 'Null' cells (present at up to approximately 6 x 10(6)/ml). Another type (MAC319 and MAC318) identified a subset comprising approximately 60% or approximately 30% of the Null cell population. This percentage appears genetically determined. This subset partially overlapped with a gamma delta T-cell receptor+ (TcR+) population… CONTINUE READING
